many gun owners themselves. when you actually talk to gun owners and nra members, they support by large majorities sensible and strengthening the current gun laws. what they support, 82% of gun owners, 72% of members actually support universal background checks. we are trying to keep guns and weapons out of the hands of dangerous people, criminals, and the seriously mentally ill. when you talk to people in west virginia, gun owners themselves want to be able to have guns in their homes. they also want to ensure that those guns do not fall into the hands of people who should not have them. the other constituency that is important is law enforcement. they are unanimous in their support for assault weapon ban for capacity magazines and closing loopholes. host: gun control could split obama, reid. they say backing restrictions could hurt the senate leader and other democrats. this story points out that for some democrats up for reelection, supporting the president will be treacherous terrain. they go on to talk about facing reelection battles in states where gun control is politically unpop

. >> it will be difficult because not these are pro-gun states. more because the nra is so powerful and basically try to destroy anybody that supports any kind of even reasonable gun control. none of these politicians will come out and say that but that is the bottom line. they know if they come out against they will be bombarded by ads from the nra. bill: tony. >> i think with all due respect that is over simplification. nra is not a partisan, one party organization. they support a whole lot of democrats. if you look at rahm emanuel, the mayor of chicago who was obama's chief of staff, when he was head of dccc he actively recruited pro-gun demonstrates from pro-gun districts because this is really a regional issue. so what you are going to have right now, not people who are against sensible reforms, and i agree, many of these are sensible. we have already background checks. let's enforce those. bill: you have them a lot of places. if it were passed in federal law would have to do it in every state. that is the assumption we're working off this definition. >> sure. bill: tried to figure out what it m
, the other ads that the nra ran that were offensive about the president's children, all these ads seem to be problematic. >> i find that ad really infuriating for this reason. we have some deep, deep problems that drive crime and violence in this society. for example, 1% of u.s. adults are behind bars. and that, a lot of scholars believe, has actually exacerbated the crime problem. it actually drains communities of their life blood and causes huge, huge problems. dianne feinstein has been a big advocate of three strikes laws, lock away the key, throw them in jail, you know, throw away the key kind of approaches that have actually had devastating effects on a lot of communities that are the biggest victims of criminal violence. and then we get an assault weapons ban, that is basically a cosmetic approach. the reason you said 2 to 8%, is that we don't even know what really counts as an assault weapon. they're literally naming guns. guess what, i take off this one stock, this foldable stock, it's not an assault weapon anymore. this is nonsense legislation that is purely symbolic, that is
the opposition's base, it's fueling the n.r.a. with new funding, new membership, why do the democrats want to take this on? >> well, in part because they do want to actually see action, but what you saw with senator feinstein acknowledging what an uphill battle it is, you start to wonder, the administration's own push with some executive action, with a lot of things that they can do behind the scenes, they're doing this two-fold and congress is acting outside of what the administration wishes. so it's two real tracks and it's no accident the vice president is going to virginia tomorrow to take this show on the road a little bit with a round table discussion, he's going to have different lawmakers there. this is the site -- the state where virginia tech happened, the school shooting there, very tragic, and he's trying to sort of capitalize on a lot of that energy the same way they're doing on newtown to motivate people to action. from a political perspective in congress democrats raised pacs, as well. gabrielle giffords aims to raise $20 million for the 2014 midterm elections. the n.r.a. is
